With all of these its and bits about illustrators, I thought I should tell y’all a little about me.
I’m a 35-year-old professional copywriter. I’ve been collecting the work of Edward Gorey since I was 15 and in the last two years I’ve started to be seriously interested in other illustrators. Over the years, I’ve collected fine art and photography (no, the two are not mutually exclusive), rare books and other things that I happen to get caught up in, so I suppose illustration was the next logical step.
But there’s SO MUCH to collect and become wrapped up in! So I’m continuing my Edward Gorey collection and focusing on saving up some extra money to buy some original illustrations from artists I love.
Maybe this blog will give you some new ideas about an area of collecting that I personally think is well worth the interest and effort, and maybe it will help you pass some time. Either way, thank you for checking it out!
